The Power List 2020 – Big Breakthroughs
Jonathan is a molecular pathologist at John Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore. His research focuses on the application of oncogenic biomarkers to the detection of cancer in solid tumors. His development of a next-generation sequencing assay to detect bladder cancer from cfDNA in the supernatant of urine cytology specimens earned him the Young Investigator Award from the Association for Molecular Pathology and the Benjamin Castleman Award from USCAP. “My best advice would be to find mentors who will listen to your ideas and give you the freedom to pursue them,” says Jonathan.
